      I call more often preflop then 4bet, because people in general spew so much. How to adapt versus him in future? Should I call AJ+, KQ? what about 88-99? I would call river also without hitting set, since his shove river looks like wierd played TT, 33, but I think he wouldnt give me a free card on turn on drawy board.

      Pre call is ok since it's almost a minraise, but why don't you check/raise flop? There are couple of draws, and you are oop. If villain has a draw, he can get a free card on the turn. If he has TP/OVP he will stack off lighter, because your range cointains draws aswell. I'd play check/calling only If he was some maniac who pots/overbets every street, but folds vs a raise. Without this read, x/r is a lot better than x/c.
      As played I usually bet the river with small sizing, because some ppl go crazy, and thinks ah blockbet!! let's raise it. After he checked turn he doesn't really have strong hands in his range , that could call a bet this big on the river.

      Hey hey,

      I think you played it perfectly.

      I don't like check/raising flop that much. His range when he bets 8bb won't be that strong so we don;t have to fear getting drawn out here plus we don't represent a weaker range by raising.

      River, nothing got there, we have the nuts imo, fist pump and call his shove. Regarding your question, I mentioned in another hand about calling 3bets OOP. The summary: call with an uncapped range, don't 4bet at all and see how it goes. It will be profitable unless your opponent adjusts but the point is to see if and how he adjusts, then you can switch your plan too.

      I planned to raise him on turn and get more money from bluff barrels. Off course he might have fd here, but not so often that I have to be afraid of it. When he takes a free card on turn, It is mostly give up with air, or it makes sense with fd, or some bottom pair and hopes to imrove hand, and very often Tx which plans to bluff catch river. so I bet big on river because Tx calls, sometimes even weaker if he thinks I was on a draw, or I am having overcards.
      I think that betting small on river is not so good, because in NL50 reggs are not so stupid to bluff raise it, because it is obvious value hand. It cant be a block bet, because villian check behind turn which means pot controling or give up.
